President Bola Tinubu and former President Muhammadu Buhari
are expected to attend a book presentation by Femi Adesina, immediate-past
The book titled ‘Working with Buhari’ will be presented at
the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja on January 16.
This could be the first time the incumbent, who is special
guest of honour, and the past president, will appear together publicly since
the handover of May 29.
In a statement, Garba Deen Muhammad, chair of the planning
committee, said Yakubu Gowon, a former head of state, will chair the occasion;
while I.B.M Haruna, a retired general, will serve as co-chair.
Muhammad said a royal delegation led by Prince Abdulaziz Bin
Faisal Al Saud has confirmed that it will attend the event, and Mohammed
Indimi, billionaire businessman, will be the chief launcher.
“The book will provide insight unlikely to be found anywhere
else; because Femi will be telling his story from a morally strong position,”
the chair of the planning committee said.
“Those who know Femi are very familiar with his unwavering
loyalty to his principal, former President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The book will reveal
Femi’s motivation; why Buhari was, is, and will likely remain his hero. It is,
in one sentence, ‘a study in loyalty’.”
The book, published by Safari Books, is a memoir of
Adesina’s eight years in office as special adviser to Buhari on media and
publicity — an office that afforded him a front-row seat in the administration.
